And My Projects Begin A Bit Early


Spring Peeper FarmWe had put our name at the local dairy farm for two bull calves this year. Like I mentioned in my last post, we're going to raise one for us and one to donate the meat to people in need.

I wanted the calves around mid-February to early March. Because we do have lots of goats milk in a freezer in the basement (that's an understatement! It's a FULL freezer of milk) that's getting old and needs to be used up. So I figured it would get rid of most of the milk and by then the does would have kidded.

Well, things NEVER go according to plan. Last weekend the dairy called and said they had two calves if we wanted them. I was like, uh, ummm well ... but when they said one was crossed with a beef breed I said yes right away!

You NEVER get them crossed with a beef breed. That meant that one of them is going to have lots more meat on it when it's time for the butcher.

So Dave went to get them a few days later.

When he gets home he tells me that the brown one is a heifer!
